I was walking on my campus today and I saw a morning dove on the sidewalk, just sitting. I was confused, and when I got closer I saw an open wound on his neck. He looked right at me and just blinked. I didn’t feel right leaving him there alone, and I ran into another girl trying to figure out who we could call to help us. Several phone calls later, we were still alone with the bird. I decided that even if we really couldn’t do anything for him, it wasn’t right to let him just stay in the cold. I ran to my dorm to get a small box and a shirt to wrap him in, to keep him warm. I came back, and the bird was in the same spot, feathers ruffled. He blinked again, and then he just closed his eyes.
Knowing that I couldn’t save him devastated me, but I still sat next to him for a few minutes after he died, because I just didn’t want to leave him alone. I hope he makes it to bird heaven okay.
I’ve got two potential internships as of right now, I did my own taxes (federal and state) and I’m all caught up on homework. And I’m feeling like a boss. :)
Being sick, wanting school to be over, and overall just having way too much to do can be overwhelming. My way of getting through?
Soul Music :)
I’ve been listening to the classics like Ray Charles and Etta James, and those modern voices that people are put on this earth with a gift, like Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae and Adele. And it’s been a good few days.
Happy listening :)
